Road signs flow into the headlights
Whisper names and fall behind
He finds some honor in the darkness
Hopes for grace and peace of mind

“Becoming a dissident is not something that happens overnight. You do not simply decide to become one. It is a long chain of steps and acts. And very often during this process, you do not really reflect upon what is happening...You don’t want to become involved with the dirt that is around you and one day, all of a sudden you wake up and realize that you are a dissident, that you are a human rights activist.” – Vaclav Havel, former Czech President (1993-2003) & activist
We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught. He can be killed and forgotten.
But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.

And here we are.
People have been violent for as long as there's been people.
And here we are.
So what's the answer? I don't know. Still trying to figure out what the right questions are.

Violence isn't the best way to make a living; it's not the best way to find a lover; or have children. It's not the best way to be happy. It's not the best way to make a better world for tomorrow, sustain the environment, teach the youth.
I don't think you've thought this one out.
